Connecting your phone to the Internet through a computer (Internet Pass-through)

If you don’t have a data plan for your phone or you don’t have access to a Wi-Fi network, you can still go online on your phone by using your computer’s Internet connection.

Before you can use your computer as a modem, be sure to install HTC Sync on your computer first.
  1. Make sure your computer is connected to the Internet.
    Important: Two things to check for your computer’s Internet connection. One, we recommend that you turn off your local network’s firewall. Two, if your computer connects to the Internet via PPP (e.g. Dial UP, xDSL, or VPN), Internet Pass-through will only support TCP protocol.
  2. Connect the phone to the computer using the provided USB cable.
  3. On the Connect to PC screen, select Internet pass-through, and then tap Done.
